like the ceiling can’t hold us


i’ve been writing about identity and my approach to the self lately. so i wanted to share and expose another aspect of my notion of what creates or at least strengthens my sense of self.

my name is heather, but i have been called many other names in my 22 years of life so far. here is a list of the nick names i have been offered and by whom:

heath = Jesse
heather rose = walker family and my mom when she is mad
false teeth heath = myspace
hej = adam G and annie b
haja = susan, art, dad
shmeth = renee and shane
heathballs = emily coles
cheddddda = Susie Johnson
bug = dad and mom
lumpy = dad and grandma
little man = eli fletcher
heather cheddar cheese = sarak kasander and morgan johnson
strong friend = paige, josh, jeremy, and avery
star sister = amanda and lisa from sweden
pump girl = jim alison
bruce = alison lee
child b = mom and dad

nick names can be a reflection of who i am right? do your nick names speak to who you are?

  1. My nicknames are “nae nae” “nazers” “peanut” (mama gave me that one) “gernade” (gave to me my my little sisters) I can’t think of anymore right now. I love you Shmeath!
